Trump was the most incompetent and corrupt president in history. He makes Dick Nixon look like a paragon of virtue.   

A banana republic is a government propped up by the American military for the benefit of American banana growers. Not sure your analogy works, naffy.

We’re now being told that he’s our kindly best pal and that he is going to put a big band-aid on all of the ORANGE MAN BAD hurt that our beloved country has suffered through.No, seriously everyone, kindly Grandpa Gropes wants us all to be better now:

Don’t worry about it Naffy. Feel free to continue your hand wringing and whining. Biden has no expectation that you’ll conduct yourself with grace and dignity. Half of you are still in denial about Biden’s landslide victory over one-term Trump. The other half is engaged in a month long temper tantrum. 

Biden is signalling that he will govern the country like a real president. It’s something that many of us longed for after four years of the orange grifter.

Even FOX has become too mainstream for Trump supporters. They are flocking to OANN, Newsmax and those weird alt-right sites that crop up every other day. When they use one of those sites as a source of information, what choice do we have but to remind them that they are being lied to. 

Telling them the truth won’t work, of course. They don’t care what we think. They want to “own” us, even if it is only in their imagination.

A constitutional amendment is unlikely to pass. The GOP will oppose it wholeheartedly.

There’s a high probability that the GOP will nominate a candidate in 2024 who is very much like Trump. The candidate may be less of a screwup and more loyal to the Republican establishment but the populism and demagoguery will run just as deep. We have our work cut out for us.

Seems that way. Covid, the election that never ends and thanksgiving add up to a lot of stress.

That tweet is great - seriously. It’s so hard to keep up with Trump’s losing that a cheat sheet is needed.

I didn’t, but you did unpin Ricky’s thread and hide it in the dungeon after he kicked your ***. Why? 

It’s unnecessary to link the thread because a lot of people saw it but I’ll link it anyway.

 What leads you to believe that herd immunity is pseudoscience?
The second wave was projected to be higher than the first and mitigating actions were taken to limit the first. If masks are 50% effective (an admitted guess on my part) then the peak will be lower in locations where masks are used but there will still be a peak. I.e, take a graph that trends up. Halve every value. The graph will still trend up. The magnitude at each point and the instantaneous slope at any point will be lower but the peaks will still exist at the same point.  I’m willing to accept that I am rusty at this stuff so feel free to point out where you think I have erred. 

To my way of thinking, herd immunity is pseudoscience because there is a paucity of evidence to support the hypothesis. To me, science that is not backed by empirical evidence becomes pseudoscience if it is published for widespread distribution to the general public.

And yet, in this heavily Right Wing area in which I live, here is my admittedly anecdotal experience of a few hours ago:
 

Several times today, monster pickup trucks, without mufflers and displaying giant TRUMP and American flags, roared up and down our street;  And we don't live on a main thoroughfare !  Inside the cabins of the trucks, assault weapons were prominently displayed.

Such a demonstration must surely have been organized.  There's a world of difference between watching something like this on the news and being subjected to the reality of militant Fascism, close by.  It could be this local phenomenon is less impactful than it seems, close-up and personal.

In the news, Trump faithful, in emulation of their Il Duce, are raising their duplicitous voices, nationwide, with fake claims of a rigged election;  As Trump himself pursues a scorched earth policy, in the two months he has left. 

I think Joe Biden is handling himself admirably during this stressful time.  I only hope justice prevails on January 20.
Your anecdote rings all too true. Our county went 75% for Trump and we know the type. We haven’t witnessed an organized deplorable pickup parade since the election but we have seen plenty of trucks, boats and houses decked out with Trump flags. They are loud, proud and eager to intimidate. 
 
ETA Joe has done well. He has maintained a calm maturity that stands in stark contrast to the man he defeated. At his press event today he said that he knows how to work with the other side (presumably McConnell). This is conjecture but I assume he means that the back channel lines of communication are open. 
 
The Mooch said that he expects Trump’s anger to persist but the anger of his supporters to subside. He’s probably correct.

President-elect Biden will be sworn in on January 20th after his landslide win over one-term Trump. 
Democrats will still control the House. 
Happy dances were had,

The Daily Mail’s lead story is the hair dye running down Rudy’s face. Funny, but not front page newsworthy.

London has some very reputable news outlets. The Daily Mail is not one of them.

@Coolguy10013  , this interesting post is five days old. Considering what has transpired, it’s an eternity.  Your post has withstood the test of time.  Trump’s legal challenges had a terrible week. The million MAGA March was embarrassingly small. Generals have made it clear that they will not involve themselves in domestic politics. Trump is begging historians to be kind to him. 

President-elect Joseph Biden and vice-president-elect Kamala Harris will be sworn in on January 20th.

A little OT but ...

Great discussion. It illustrates why we need a viable LO room. I don’t think it would be possible to have a mature discussion about abortion in NHB. Congratulations @RollingRock  and @bludog  for maintaining a room where we can post an opinion about a topic that many of us struggle with.

As a Christian, I am uncomfortable with abortion.

I am uncomfortable with a women being forced to carry a baby to term against her will.

I’ve never resolve my competing views. Mildly pro-choice is my default position because it is a very personal (and sometimes painful) decision for the woman. Despite my sympathy for those who oppose abortion, I cannot endorse their desire to prosecute women.

The answer to when human life begins is far above my pay grade. The moment of conception is too early. The moment of birth is too late.

Congratulations @Isabel  on the tribute thread.  You must have burned @Vegas badly for him to use his wife in the video.
